Education policy

The Physiological Society supports physiology in education, and our policy work spans from primary level to post-graduate education, ensuring we engage across the curriculum and at multiple levels . Below are our current projects in education policy, and it would be great to hear any views you may have on the issues raised. 

At primary and secondary school, The Society supports the work of SCORE through a working-group created by the Society of Biology, feeding into consultation responses and engaging across the biological disciplines in a collaborative way on issues such as the development of the National Curriculum. 

At the Higher Education level, we reply to consultations, both individually and in collaboration with the Society of Biology on cross-disciplinary issues. We are also looking, amongst other things, at how we can develop a 'Medical Physiology Core Curriculum'.

Our education policy work is overseen by both our Policy and Education & Outreach Committees, with valuable support from The Society's Education and Teaching Theme.

If you have any questions or wish to engage further with our education work, please email the Policy Officer on

We keep a record of completed work and projects, so as to keep Members informed about what sort of work we carry out, and so as to increase our transparency. A list of this work may be found here.
